I didn’t want my Parents to Watch My sex Role in Fifty –Mr. Nigeria

Emmanuel Ikubuese became popular when he won the Mr. Nigeria contest few years ago. But now, his popularity somewhat went a notch higher with his ‘sex’ role in Fifty, a Mo Abudu movie.
Of course, the sex scene he played in the movie got many buzzing with not a few people wondering aloud how Ikubuese could be so brazen in the movie.

Explaining his role, Ikubuese said it was it was a job and he had to do it very well.
“I see acting as an art and you need to prove yourself. The film does not have anything to do with our cultural values.  Fifty has a vision and the vision is not only to sell in Nigeria but an international vision to show the world.  I believe movie is about bringing life into an act.”
However, Ikubuese said he had hoped his parents didn’t get to watch the movie and see the role he played.
“Actually, I didn’t want them to see it, they always come out to watch my movies at the cinemas but I did not tell them about Fifty. But it was such a big movie so they were there to watch it,” he said.
The actor cum model also said he was paid handsomely for that role.
“I was paid a lot of money. If the movie is successful, do you think I won’t collect a lot of money?”
Meanwhile, the actor is also trying to make an impact with his Non Governmental Organisation, Emmanuel Ikibuese Foundation, which is cantered on training youths on how to avoid domestic violence in our society.
“We have gone to different states and schools, we recently went to the University of Lagos to educate our undergraduates on how to avoid domestic violence.  We are also working on a couple of programmes on how to eradicate the issue of domestic violence in our society,” he said.
